Moped

"moped" (pronounced as one syllable) may be a past form of the verb "to mope". mopeds (pronounced mow–ped) are a type of low-powered motorcycle designed to provide economical and relatively safe transport with minimal licensing requirements. mopeds were once all equipped with bicycle-like pedals (the source of the term, motor + pedal), but moped has been increasingly applied by governments to vehicles without pedals, based on their restricted engine displacement, speed, and/or power output.
